Imagine how surprised I was when I started reading Sweet On You. This story of Katya, whose career in the military is short-circuited due to PTSD, and Cam, the bullrider who knows the end of his bullriding days is drawing near and can't see a life without it. Each character in this book is a 'real' person, with a distinctive voice. And as we follow the plot we witness both Katya and Cam learning to let go of the past to grab for the future. In the process, they fall in love and this happens so naturally, it seems believeable when they also fall in bed together. This is a romance but it is so much more. This is a story of learning to forgive yourself. After all, aren't we all our own worst critic?
The complexity of the back-story for both the H/H in this novel are anything but cliché, yet snippets let the characters unfold as the plot progresses. The character arcs are masterful.
I read this book a second time -- notebook beside me -- intending to pick up tips on how she handles unique dialog cues, setting, visceral reactions, pops-on-the-page pacing, and steam scenes. Like another author I follow (Jennifer Crusie), I got caught up in the story the second time through. I felt as if I was on-scene with the characters; seeing what they saw, feeling what they felt. I doubt it will be any different if I try this one a third time.
The hero, Cam, is likeable. Great writing in the way the sub-plots dovetailed into the perfect resolution for them to work out their careers and lives together.
As always, Drake's writing is vivid and fast-paced.
